We've adapted our grants programme to help Letchworth based groups and charities provide relief to the community during the COVID-19 emergency.
The programme, which awards funding each year to Letchworth groups, clubs and individuals, has been repurposed to create a new COVID-19 Catalyst Grant, offering grants from £200 - £8,000.
Now the Foundation wants to hear from charities and groups who will be working during the crisis to ensure people’s basic needs such as food, shelter, health and socialisation are being met.
Alastair Stewart, Head of Grants, Partnerships & Community Services said: “The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to a significant change in people's lives and personal circumstances in a short space of time and is likely to continue for several months. It is important that we, as a place-based charitable foundation, work with our community to find ways to support our more vulnerable residents.
